Impact of Youth Entrepreneurship - The Biblical Apprentice

According to the U.S. Department of Labor and Statistics “80 percent of would-be entrepreneurs in the United States are between the ages of 18 and 34! A 2005 poll from Junior Achievement (JA) found that 68.6 percent of the teenagers interviewed wanted to become entrepreneurs, even though they knew that it would not be an easy path.” In addition to their desire to pursue entrepreneurship, studies have shown that teens who participate in youth entrepreneurship programs do better academically, have stronger interpersonal skills and relationships and are more prepared to find employment and pursue career opportunities in a highly-competitive job market.

The Nehemiah Project is launching the Biblical Apprentice in 2013 to reach these young entrepreneurs with a vision to train 300 teens in six cities throughout the United States.

The Biblical Apprentice youth entrepreneurship program prepares local teens, ages 11 -18, for real world business challenges by teaching them the value of teamwork, biblical ethics and taking an idea from conception to the development of a profit-making Kingdom Business – God’s way.
